Phonics Sound mats

Oaks class love doing our daily DOUGH DISCO! Dough disco is exercise for the fingers to improve fine muscle control.  It is a five minute session working with the children on building up muscles in their fingers and hands so that they have the strength and flexibility to confidently pick up mark making tools and pencils. It is good before long writing tasks as a warm-up but essential every day exercise for foundation stage.

Below are the Long Term Planning documents for EYFS and KS1 outlining the topics we will be teaching throughout 2017-2018. This document is a work in progress, We are continually updating and changing our ideas based on the children's interests.

Christmas Term

We are really enjoying learning about Christmas in Oaks Class.

The children have enjoyed the continuous provision making Christmas decorations and designing and building stables and grottos.
